Country:

CALIFORNIA LOCOS is a group show of five native L.A. artists whose work spans the last half century in the L.A. art scene. Inspired by the Southern California sun, sand and street culture, the show draws inspiration from a variety of sources including surf, skate, punk rock and the barrio. Their work is highly individualized and evolved, a reflection of the past, present and future of the SoCal aesthetic. A key artwork in the show is a poster designed by Andres Cuervo and Dave Tourje´ in collaboration with graffiti artist Chaz Bojorquez and graphic artist John Van Hamersveld.  Bojorquez’ work was recently featured in LA MOCA’s exhibition, “Art In the Streets” and Van Hamersveld’s book and artwork are featured in the February Issue of Vanity Fair Magazine. Red Pipe will publish a color catalog for the exhibition, with essays by Mat Gleason of Coagula Curatorial and Eve Wood of Artillery Magazine.  

 

From the catalog:

 

“As the title of the exhibition California Locos suggests, these artist’s work is derived, or in some cases seemingly extracted, from the Southern California landscape in which it was forged, the word “locos” referring both to the Spanish word “loco” which means crazy, while also suggesting the idea of a fluid and supremely variegated “locale.”” -Eve Wood
